How many cups of coffee do you drink a day? 1 maybe 2, or is it closer to 3, 4, 5, or even 6 cups! Dont worry many of us here at BUNN are at the top end of that scale too! If youre a male, your coffee habit may be helping your health.
According to a recent blog post on NPR.org, a Harvard study shows that drinking at least six cups of coffee a day reduces the risk of aggressive prostate cancer by 60 percent. If you dont drink that many cups of day, dont fret, because the men who drank three cups a day had a 30 percent lower chance of getting the lethal prostate cancer.
Lorelei Mucci, an author of the study and an epidemiologist at the Harvard School of Public Health, says more research is needed before urging people to drink coffee for its health benefits, but she did tell NPR, theres no reason not to start drinking coffee.
We couldnt agree more!
